Nick coached my daughter, Ann, through her South Bay Teen Idol Competition, in which she was a finalist. Ann was competing against singers with more years of experience, but the superior quality of Nick's instruction enabled her to be competitive.

Instructor is encouraging and patient, also pays attention to details. My kid is very happy with the first lesson as the instructor helped her correct and improve finger positions, and taught her how to use muscles properly.

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want, combining it with the specific piano techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya

I have been teaching violin from young children to beginner adults for 10 years. I also teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I believe that the the music potential comes through discipline, self-motivation and passion. As a teacher, my goal is to get to know each of my students and create individually tailored lessons according to my student's needs and goals. I believe that a strong technical foundation is a key in music making - when a student feels comfortable playing the instrument , they find how much they are capable of doing and what a great joy is this music making process. This is why I put a strong emphasis on the technical aspects. They say "practice makes perfect", but in reality only perfect practice makes your playing perfect, in other words, my goal as a teacher, is to give my students all the right tools to

succeed, when after each lesson you feel you improved your playing and gained new skills, even if its a small one.
Lessons are taught using a Traditional method refer to students learning to read music. Whereas the Suzuki Method students learn by ear which I (might) use for very young students age 3-5. For older students I use certain aspects of the Suzuki method but definitely incorporate basic theory and note reading as early as possible.
All students will have the opportunity and are encouraged to perform in recitals.

She is really patient and fun to be around. Great environment for anyone of any age.

Piano has so many challenges for beginners so I emphasize the basics early. A student wants to be able to continue advancing independently and needs to have a proper foundation of theory in order to do that.
Students may have talents in playing by ear and may have interest in making their own compositions, I am a teacher who will encourage these ambitions. Not forgetting, again, to continue pressing the study of theory.
Knowing how to hone in on a student's learning style has helped me keep individuals moving forward and keep the instruction exciting!
I love music and just want others to get to express themselves and find the joy in it that I do.

About Sharon

Music has been a central pulse to my entire life. I started taking piano lessons at age 5 and picked up the clarinet in elementary school. By the end of middle school I was writing songs on the piano and guitar and trying to get anyone I knew to play in a band with me.
In High School I finally did manage to play in a band that would play shows in the Greater Rochester Area in New York State. Once I hit age 18, I packed my bags and moved to San Diego where I continued working on my craft and started my new life.
I never stopped playing music, writing songs, and trying to find people to collaborate with. By the time I started my career as a hairstylist, I knew that I had to share my love and passion for music with others and endeavored to build a student schedule.
My first students, as an adult, were my future in-laws. Mother, father and si

ster in-law learned piano, guitar and music theory with me. My late father in-law had a left leg amputation and was blind. We taped rice on the back of the guitar neck so he would have a tactile reference to his frets. It felt so good to bring a dream of his to life and to prove to naysayers that anyone can play, even if the challenges are far greater than average.
Within a year, I had enough referrals to fill 2 days of the week with students. I have held 3 recitals and plan on having a holiday recital this year.
I will never stop sharing music with others and look forward to meeting any new students granted via this platform.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I love to teach students of all ages and levels who are eager to learn and wish to grow in their music. Using a wide variety of musical genres, I work with the pianist in three different areas. 1) Muscle use, for greater facility and to support tone color. 2) Reading skills, as I have a unique way of applying theory directly to the pianist's music to support the structure of the piece. This allows the pianist freedom to interpret their music their way. 3) Interpretation, to discover the poetry of the music and support the music's energy through performance. All as a means to guide the student to become their own best teacher.

About Michele

I've been teaching piano for 26 years and my students have gone on to develop a love of music with life long skills that have brought them to the stage & recording studios, awards in the Musical Theater Industry, conservatories and sharing their music on a daily basis with confidence and joy! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand how to read and comprehend music in much the same way you read a book and as time goes on you'll be able to use these skills to fuel a large repertoire in any style of music. I specialize in Classical, Pop, Broadway and New Music, typically use Faber&Faber Books for beginning pianists, and on to the Royal Conservatory of Music Syllabus and Main Stream Repertoire to support each style of music and have the following tools available for your lessons: Books, Worksheets, Charts and more! I love

working with eager students of all ages and experience levels, including those who have years under their belt and would like to improve their skills and I can't wait to meet you!

I was recommended by a friend to have Michele as a piano teacher. I was recently retired and available to follow my dreams of playing the piano. Michele more than filled my expectations as I found enjoyment playing classical and favorite tunes.
She is wonderful!

Amy
Michele is more than a fantastic musician, although she is that as well. She has a deep understanding and love of music which is demonstrated in her teaching, her composing and her playing. What sets her truly head and shoulder above all the teachers I’ve had, several as a child and three as an adult, is her ability to tailor lessons to deepen knowledge. She is very attuned to her student and will adapt her teaching techniques if a student doesn’t learn well initially. She is comfortable with a wide range of musical styles from classical and jazz to pop and even throws in a rap beat when called for. Michele would be an excellent teacher for any student, young, mature, beginner to advanced because she has both a gift for music and a gift for teaching and connecting with students.

Michele is a sensitive fun loving player and composer who also brings so much kindness and understanding to her students. I know because I was one of them along with my kids. She's passionate and serious without being stuffy!
We love her.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

With ten years of teaching experience, I’ve learned which skills to emphasize most for beginners to become lifelong, independent musicians. A focus on music literacy and love of the instrument has my students reading (and PLAYING) in no time! Each lesson is tailored to individual goals and interests, and I take a creative approach with everything we do!

About Vanessa

Vanessa Christian is a soprano, music instructor and teaching artist living in Minneapolis, MN. Growing up in a tiny town on the Canadian border, Vanessa immersed herself in all things music from a very young age, falling in love with everything from Alanis Morissette to Les Miserables to Rachmaninoff, and everything in between. She is excited to pass on her passion for all things musical to her students.

Vanessa has a vocal music degree from Bemidji State University, with continued graduate work in opera, musical theatre, and modern American music at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, MA. Other creative and scholastic pursuits have led her to places like New York, Italy, and Berlin, performing contemporary and classical opera, musical theatre, and choral works in nine different countries by the age of 30.

Specializing

in teaching practical piano to aspiring singers has caused Vanessa to examine what skills are necessary for anyone to become a self-sufficient, life-long musician. Whether you’re learning as a hobby or in hopes of a future career, music literacy and expression are at the top of the list. Miss Vanessa emphasizes both from the very beginning with motivating joy and a creative approach.

Equally comfortable with children and adults from complete beginners to early advanced levels, Vanessa teaches piano, voice, and combined piano and voice lessons. She feels so grateful to be a part of her students’ musical journey!
